KASOAG LAKE UPDATES
Answers are back from Allied.
Allied will hold the same price for 2016 pre acre there is no retainer or deposit for our contract, we will have a vote at the next meeting; do we leave the initial deposit, or return it to the association. The permit for 2015 will not be good for 2016 and Allied is not charging the Association for ether permit, saving us about $2000.00
We are still going to push for the 2015 permit for the break down, sampling cost, how far down stream we need to post for 2016.
As you my have heard, we had a great turn out for the pulling of the fanwort but do to small hair like fibers floating and breaking into small pieces we had to stop untill I had a answer back from allied. We made the right decision to stop pulling, the root fragmentation will regenerate quicker.
We installed weed mats out by docks in shinglemill creek to help keep the fanwort suppressed. I would like to thank everyone for there effort.
News Channel 9 was not there, but Mary Augustus has an article about the lake coming out this Friday 6/26 in the queen central news paper and the letter to new York politicians will be out soon.

The treatment for Kasoag has been postponed for 2015 due to the delay from the state of New York D.E.C., with a vote taken at the membership meeting the vote was as follows: 47 yes and 0 no, so the treatment was postponed. We are still moving ahead with the permit for the treatment for 2016 will keep everyone up to date with updates. This is the best approach to this program as our funds are very limited due to no outside money. I thank all members for their patience with this situation.
A vote was also taken on this at the meeting, and next Saturday June 20th at 8am we will meet at the creek bridge to hand pull/rake fanwort, we need about 15/20 people to help with this work. We need people with boats, kayaks, and paddle boats. We will attempt to pull the fanwort to make channels to the property owners on shingle mill. Food and drinks will be served. If we find the fragments are too numerous to contain we will stop the pulling of the fanwort. The vote for this work on shingle mill was 43 yes 2 no and 2 abstained
Allied, an email was sent to Allied about the check and about holding the 2015 price for 2016
